Re: cod data section too large:65836 bytes

I am slightly confused here because the message suggests you have an issue with your 'data', which is I thought the assets you have, rather than the code.  Do you have some sort of large fixed table or array?


Anyway, just for the record, my understanding is that a BB application is treated as data or code, and the 64K limit applies to each separately.  The development environment has various packaging techniques it uses to make sure this rule is not broken, even when there are assets greater than 64 KB.
